Sophie's Squad was founded in 2021 to improve the mental health of athletes from youth to college by raising awareness of mental health issues and removing the stigma associated with seeking help.
Skate To Excellence was created in 2002 to help young skaters improve their stride and increase speed, along with developing their individual skating, shooting, passing and puck handling skills while getting ready for the upcoming season. Over the years, as the participants skills have improved and the 8U level players have developed into High School and College hockey players, our mission for Skate To Excellence has not changed. It doesn't matter what age or level you compete at, all players can improve on their stride, puck control and hockey sense.
Skate To Excellence's goal is to have all participants have a fun and positive experience while learning and improving their own individual and game situation hockey skills.
Skate To Excellence clinics are offered year-round. They give players a chance to work on power skating, edge work, shooting, passing and puck handling through repetition and over speed, and also provide time to emphasize teaching hockey sense and the understanding of more hockey strategies.
Skate To Excellence is committed to expanding our clinics and continuing to grow to teach and instruct hockey skills to develop the complete hockey player.
